Killer Deals: Apple’s 12" MacBooks for $999, 13" MacBook Airs for $799 – AppleInsider (press release) (blog)

Matching the lowest prices we’ve ever seen, readers this week can save $300 instantly and grab one of Apple’s remaining early 2015 12″ MacBooks for just $999 with free shipping and no sales tax for customers outside NY. Or grab a remaining 2015 13″ MacBook Air for $799.

While supplies last, Apple authorized reseller and AppleInsider sponsor B&H Photo is knocking $300 off Apple’s 12″ MacBooks in Silver, Space Gray & Gold, dropping them to $999 and matching the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for these early 2015 models. Each also includes free expedited shipping (or 45 minute in-store pickup), and no sales tax if you ship your order to an address outside New York state. Several other early 2015 models are also showing up in our Mac Price Guide guide at discounts of $200 (listed below).

Although Apple recently introduced 2016-model 12″ MacBooks, they feature only minor internal upgrades over the 2015 models. In fact, AppleInsider recently pit a new 2016 12″ MacBook against a 2015 model in a speed test face-off and found that the 2016 models deliver only marginal speed improvements over their predecessors in real-world scenarios. That makes any remaining 2015 12″ MacBooks an exceptional value for most shoppers at such deep discounts. The only significant speed gains garnered by the 2016 systems come for heavy video editing, something that remains much better suited to a MacBook Pro. Therefore, shoppers will save between $370 and $450 with this deal compared with paying full price for a 2016 model with tax at an Apple Store.
